Chartreuse Green and Purple Moroccan Mosaic Tiles

Another of those pesky men's cards! And a nice and simple one at that!

Three tile shapes were punched into purple paper using the XCut Moroccan Ornate punch, and then die cut using a standard square Nestabilities die. These were then matted onto gold satin card, also die cut.

A strip of the green and purple damask paper from the Papermania Persimmon paper pad was matted onto the gold card and across a panel of the green foliage paper, from the same paper pad.

The mosaic tiles were added across the strip and clear dew drops from Patti's Pretties were added in between them.

The scrolly 'Happy Birthday' stamp from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set was stamped at the bottom of the patterned paper using Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink. 

Here are the blog challenges I am entering this card into:
